Be Obedient

Obey the law
and you will live
So were the words of the savior,
the messiah to a people who would not hear
Easy words of instruction, clear on their face
contorted, twisted, the words more important
than the love they were to share
A lesson in living the law of God,
to love your neighbor as yourself
Piety and stricture, puffing
deflated in the example of the stranger
the unclean Samaritan
obeying the law
in ways they would not
breathing the spirit of the law
doing the will of God
